Late Show Highlights

It’s been a little while since we checked in on the Late Show with David Letterman. Let’s see how he’s doing. Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

Every year People Magazine publishes their list of sexiest men in the world. This year it’s Johnny Depp. I’m on the list, but a little farther down. I’m between Balloon Boy’s dad and that “You lie!” guy.

You know who we had on the program last night? A guy by the name of Joe Cada. If his name’s not familiar, he’s a kid, he’s like twenty-one years old, and he’s the 2009 winner of the World Series of Poker. And when he was here I was thinking, gosh, he looks happy to be here. And then I thought, meh, he’s probably just bluffing.

Right now the President of the United States, Barack Obama, is visiting China. He visited the Great Wall of China today. It’s five thousand miles long and it works wonderfully, not one Mexican has sneaked into China.

A new poll shows that President Barack Obama’s approval rate is now under 50%. Well, welcome to the club, I said.

The White House announced that they no longer recognize Fox as a new organization, which puts them about eight years behind the rest of us, but that’s ok.

The first desk segment was Stupid Human Tricks. As usual, it was hilarious:


The second desk segment was Top Ten Highlights of Barack Obama’s Interview with Fox News. It was ok.

Robert Pattinson was the first couch guest. Robert is one of the stars of the Twilight series of films, just like Kristen Swanson, who was on Conan Monday night. Having no knowledge of Robert before the interview I thought it was quite good. Robert was personable, had that funny British-humor thing going on, and seemed altogether quite normal. This clip is the best example of what I mean:


Ray Davies, best known as lead singer and songwriter for The Kinks, was the musical guest. He played an updated version of “You Really Got Me.” It was good.

Good show. I give it:
